Everything I have on Corvair F/C's.

Thought about pushing Army's to finish the new body.

My Crew Chief has a bunch of BBC stuff.

Figured I should stick with Landspeed.

I probably have hundreds of Vair funny car pics. I bought a drag racing soundtrack and started to make a video a few times but was overwhelmed by too many photos. I still find new ones or guys like Spyderman send me some.

It would be scary to drive one of those Funny Cars !

What are the rear wheels on the Hayden car? Very cool.
